    Yes, for ethernet to wi-fi for sure. It will probably work with a USB dongle as well. These instructions are about two OS X versions old, so the details are probably wrong.

    Upgraded my i4 with verizon to the i5 on October 25th. So my iPad mini should be here on the 2nd and my i5 should be here on the 20th! (making my iPad mini worthless at home due to lack of internet)
    Geez, I would never move into a place without Internet. I'd rather go without a fridge or kitchen, seriously.

    I was thinking the same thing. If I had unlimited LTE via USB dongle, I'd leave whatever computer it is in - up and running 24x7 acting as a hotspot for everything in my house needing Internet: printers, TiVos, cellphones, tablets, Slingbox, cameras, BluRay players, Apple TVs, Skype phone, etc.

    (Dang, I have a lot of things connected in my house!)

    I am going to check it out tomorrow and will decide. Already sold my iPad 3, now the question if I am getting the Mini or 4 and currently leaning towards the Mini. Just hope they will have some in stock tomorrow!

    i pondered over screen size and shape long and hard before deciding on the iPad 2, at that time i would have preferred the 7" format in the ipad 1 case. i wen't with iPad 2 in the end because i hade the iPhone 4 and the apps are copied across.

    tbh i would not now change back, i keep pdf's of manuals i use at work so the larger screen score higher for me.

    if only Apple would go back to the squared case to match the iPhone , never understood why the reversed happened in the designs from 3gs bar of soap to the fabulous iPhone 4, 4s and 5
    and iconc ipad2/3 iad 2

    After reading you all talking about the iPad Mini and now the news regarding stereo speakers...I just might mosey on over to Best Buy and see if they have the Mini available. I'm starting to feel left out on all the fun! LOL

    Hope to get one tomorrow for my birthday at the Apple store. I have iPad 2 that I carry all the time for work & home & the lighter mini would be very welcome replacement. I am very excited!
